Stunning wine! The "Petrus of Saumur Champigny" is no mean praise from the Moueix family of Petrus fame when they talk of Jean-Pierre Chevallier. The property has 15 hectares planted on the chalky soils on the slopes and plateau rising above the Loire river itself upstream from Saumur. Tasting: The black cherry flavours, the balance between strength and smoothness and the silky texture of this Saumur-Champigny are proof that this appellation knows how to produce great wines, class, purity and complexity. All handpicked. 100% Cabernet Franc.
Perfect for a light red such as New Zealand Pinot Noir or a youthful Loire Cabernet Franc, this wine from the Loire with its pure berry fruit, a touch of farmyard and rustic aromas work very well with these cheeses.
